In order to cope with the huge rush for railway tickets with Deepawali and Chhath pooja approaching, Indian Railways is expected to announce some special trains from Haridwar to Howrah on Saturday.
Thousands are thronging the ticket counters of the Dehradun railway station to have tickets booked to travel home. Some are booking through internets. The railway officials said that the trains to cities like Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Howrah and Kathgodam are running full now and the situation would remain the same till the first week of November.

That is because of Platform constraint. only One platform is capable of handling 21 coaches of ICF. most probably it is PF#3.
I had seen at Haridwar, some coaches of DDN bound trains are detached.
HW is capable of handling 24 coach train. But only Ahmedabad mail and Utkal are of such length. Rest all are small 15 coach trains. Atleast Kumbha can be made 24 coach train while upasana can be added 9-10 coach at Haridwar to meet demand.
